On the beach you find a bottle with a map inside: an X marks the spot of buried treasure! Squawker the parrot gives you a magic telescope which whisks you away to Cap’n Sardine’s pirate ship. There you walk the plank, hop on a wooden leg, look through a telescope and eventually spot Treasure Island. Will you find the golden coins?


In this Experience, your class will learn:

  • Physical pirate tropes, such as a wooden leg and eye patch
  • Features of a pirate ship: the sail, anchor, crow’s nest, skull and crossbones, and plank
  • Hunting for treasure with a map where X marks the spot

  • For KS1 & KS2: Recap, Discuss & Quiz; Glossary; Reading Comprehension; Grammar & Punctuation; Writing Opportunities
  • For EYFS: Recap, Create & Play; Word Mat; Actions Storyboard; Song lyrics & mp3s (for some Experiences)
